Getting file and folder information

You want to know the file type or creator of a file.

>>> from Carbon import File
>>> info = File.FSSpec('Todo').FSpGetFInfo()     
>>> info.Type
'****'
>>> info.Creator
'Hdra'
>>> 

Note that FSSpecs have some issues, see http://developer.apple.com/technotes/tn2002/tn2078.html

>>>import MacOS
>>> MacOS.GetCreatorAndType('Todo')
('Hdra', '****')
